Abatement Process Still Leaves Risk of Asbestos Exposure

Ridding a building of asbestos, also known as the process of abatement, is vital to the safety of all of those who utilize the building. There is, however, a safe and unsafe way to go about removing asbestos. Unfortunately, the safe way to rid a building of asbestos can be very expensive and time consuming. Some companies or building owners may opt to just begin ripping up the building, however, this is not advised. The Old Peerless Woolen Mills complex located in Rossville, Georgia, is currently undergoing the process of abatement, after asbestos was found during a rennovation project. The process has been delayed, sparking an argument over the building's safety.

Workers first noticed a fine white powder in various locations surrounding the building. Believing that this powder was a sign of asbestos, the workers informed the building owner. The president of one of the building's tenents (Tek-Mak) sent the powder away to be tested. The powder was tested and came back positive for asbestos. When the owners of Tek-Mak took the issue up with the building owner, they were given a note of eviction. Arguments continue to surround this issue, however, the asbestos found in the building remains a serious threat to the safety of workers and the inhabitants of the building.
